Played at Beausejour Stadium, Gros Islet, St Lucia (neutral venue)
24 March 2007 (50-over match)

Anderson to Shah, OUT, gone! Well, Shah should've come forward there. Back in his crease, the ball kept low and he just couldn't get his bat down in time

RD Shah b Anderson 4 (21m 11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 36.36

Kenya 10/1   MA Ouma 3* (20b)   JM Anderson 2.5-0-3-1

Anderson to Ouma, OUT, swinging into the batsman, who pushes at it off the back foot to Collingwood at mid-on. A shimmy to his right, and he takes the simplest of catches

MA Ouma c Collingwood b Anderson 13 (46m 45b 1x4 0x6) SR: 28.88

Kenya 35/2   AO Suji 6* (9b 1x4)   JM Anderson 5.1-0-9-2

Mahmood to Suji, OUT, well, sad to say that was a bit inevitable - Suji not really hitting through the cover-drive on his front foot and popping that one, softly, to the man in at cover

AO Suji c Vaughan b Mahmood 14 (61m 29b 2x4 0x6) SR: 48.27

Kenya 73/3   SO Tikolo 26* (28b 4x4)   SI Mahmood 4.4-0-20-1

Collingwood to Mishra, OUT, a loose shot, on one knee and chops that one right into his stumps and there are some big celebrations there for Collingwood, the two-handed hop

T Mishra b Collingwood 0 (2m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Kenya 74/4   SO Tikolo 27* (32b 4x4)   PD Collingwood 2.5-0-8-1

Panesar to Tikolo, OUT, rapped on the pads, the ball bobbles out past slip and Obuya calls Tikolo through. But he won't run! Obuya's stranded - in comes the throw...and Monty whips off the bails. Dreadful cricket, and Obuya is furious

CO Obuya run out 10 (20m 13b 2x4 0x6) SR: 76.92

Kenya 99/5   SO Tikolo 41* (47b 6x4)   MS Panesar 0.3-0-0-0

Flintoff to Odoyo, OUT, half-an-appeal, and it's out! What a bizarre shout for lbw. Angling into the batsman - big inswing, which probably caused the doubt in Flintoff's appeal who, like us, perhaps thought it was drifting down leg. But mid-appeal, he ramped it up to 11 and roared the question with fervour. And up went the finger

TM Odoyo lbw b Flintoff 4 (14m 11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 36.36

Kenya 112/6   SO Tikolo 49* (56b 7x4)   A Flintoff 5.5-0-23-1

Collingwood to Kamande, OUT, steps back to give himself room to the slower ball, but the offcutter hits off stump with the batsman swinging across the line

JK Kamande b Collingwood 17 (31m 28b 2x4 0x6) SR: 60.71

Kenya 151/7   SO Tikolo 69* (87b 8x4)   PD Collingwood 6.4-0-33-2

Flintoff to Tikolo, OUT, brilliant reverse-swinging yorker does him. As he went back past him, the bowler patted him on the back and said well batted. And indeed it was

SO Tikolo b Flintoff 76 (131m 97b 8x4 0x6) SR: 78.35

Kenya 165/8   LN Onyango 6* (12b)   A Flintoff 7.2-0-28-2

Mahmood to Ongondo, OUT, dabbed down to gully, gets halfway down the track and realises he's got to get back - there's an underarm throw from Vaughan, very very tidy indeed, and that's gone

PJ Ongondo run out 3 (2m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Kenya 170/9   LN Onyango 8* (15b)   SI Mahmood 8.2-0-37-1

Flintoff to Varaiya, OUT, excellent work from Nixon - the batsman stabbing behind and just to say getting bat on it, setting off for the run. Nixon goes down on one knee and throws down the stumps from a good ten metres

LN Onyango run out 10 (27m 18b 0x4 0x6) SR: 55.55

Kenya 177/10   HA Varaiya 4* (7b)   A Flintoff 9-0-35-2
